Status: Verified
Type: Technical

Section 4 says:

       BEGIN:VTIMEZONE
       TZID:America/New_York
       BEGIN:STANDARD
       DTSTART:19981025T020000
       TZOFFSETFROM:-0400
       TZOFFSETTO:-0500
       TZNAME:EST
       END:STANDARD
       BEGIN:DAYLIGHT
       DTSTART:19990404T020000
       TZOFFSETFROM:-0500
       TZOFFSETTO:-0400
       TZNAME:EDT
       END:DAYLIGHT
       END:VTIMEZONE

It should say:

       BEGIN:VTIMEZONE
       TZID:America/New_York
       BEGIN:STANDARD
       DTSTART:19671029T020000
       RRULE:FREQ=YEARLY;BYMONTH=10;BYDAY=-1SU;UNTIL=20061029T060000Z
       TZOFFSETFROM:-0400
       TZOFFSETTO:-0500
       TZNAME:EST
       END:STANDARD
       BEGIN:DAYLIGHT
       DTSTART:19870405T020000
       RRULE:FREQ=YEARLY;BYMONTH=4;BYDAY=1SU;UNTIL=20060402T070000Z
       TZOFFSETFROM:-0500
       TZOFFSETTO:-0400
       TZNAME:EDT
       END:DAYLIGHT
       END:VTIMEZONE

Notes:

The time zone specification in the original example does not cover the event in the example (which occurs on 19980312, before both of the listed onsets).

---- Verifier notes -----
The corrected text uses part of the VTIMEZONE definition in the example on page 68.
